California has a rich mix of strong private and public colleges and universities. The most selective of these are going to require high grades and standardized test scores to get admitted. To see if your numbers are on target for admission, click on a school's name to see a graph of GPA, SAT score, and ACT score data for accepted and rejected students: Berkeley | Caltech | Claremont McKenna | Harvey Mudd | Occidental | Pepperdine | Pomona | Scripps | Stanford | UCLA | UCSD | USC

Where is the data in the scatergrams from and how was it obtained? Is it a small group of selected students, or does it represent all students who applied? Thank you.

The data is self reported by college applicants who are Cappex members. It represents a small percentage of actual applicants, but there are enough data points to give a clear sense of the grade and score ranges for accepted, rejected, and waitlisted students.
